Burrito Vending Machine Arrives In Los Angeles

The first-ever automated burrito dispenser is located in a 24-hour gas station in West Hollywood, Calif., and it will serve up your next meal in one minute.

The Burritobox has been described as a RedBox machine that dispenses burritos instead of movies.

What could be better than a microwaveable gas-station burrito? How about a microwaveable gas-station burrito that comes out of a vending machine. A Mobil station in West Hollywood, Calif., is now the home of the worlds first Burritobox, a bright orange vending machine that delivers warm burritos in 60 seconds.

You cant exactly customize your burrito, but you can choose from five varieties, including shredded beef and cheese, roasted potato, egg and cheese, and chorizo, sausage, egg and cheese.

Each costs $3, excluding tax and additional toppings. A side of sour cream costs an extra 50 cents, while Tabasco sauce is 65 cents and a guacamole is available for 75 cents.


Stoners aren”t complaining, but they wonder why the machine gives them burritos instead of DVD”s.

    This will of course facilitate the need for more porta potties.

    It`s not really that cutting edge. Holland has vending machines with these sorts of food. They have a very fried cheese thing you can get from a vending machine.

    I think the difference with the food in Amsterdam and the burrito boxes is that the stands in Amsterdam aren`t automatic, stand-alone boxes. People in the Febo places are constantly putting new food into the vending spots. They used to have automats in the USA way back in the 1900s to 1970s when inflation made the food too expensive for coin operated machines. The center of the building is a kitchen.



    In Japan, you can buy all sorts of things in machines, including live lobsters and smart cars.
